Many of you knew this much already. Yes, of course you knew that there were some folks on the outskirts of your neighborhood that were living in makeshift prefabricated buildings, leftovers from an old construction site perhaps. For some readers, any number of negative connotations will be thought of. But today, there are many more conscious and enlightened readers who have seen the light. They can already see some of the advantages of utilizing prefab buildings as a new alternative to the use of conventional bricks and mortar to make up the modern home.
Before we get carried away with the sustainable and environmentally friendly use of prefab buildings to make up the happy hearth and home, let’s not forget that prefabs will continue to be practical constructions for any construction site. In fact, many industries other than those associated with the building industry are making good use of prefabs, perhaps mainly due to its cost effectiveness and practicality.
It is far more cost effective and practical to erect a portable building with ‘makeshift’ but lightweight materials than to, let’s just say; pitch a tent, or impractically turn cement to build one single HQ from bricks and other wasteful materials. You get the picture by now. Those of you not yet fully aware of this, can now look at it a little more closely in awe and wonder. Yes, that’s right, people are living there. There are good folks living in prefab buildings.
These folks are modern and savvy, utterly innovative and environmentally conscious. They want to save the environment and know just how much they can live affordably, and yet comfortably and stylishly by utilizing the sustainable, recyclable and re-usable materials that go into the construction of a prefab.
